Salvation and events during the times of final judgment are considered today.  No new alarm or further warning to prepare will be provided beyond the things already on record in the holy writings; thus, the “day of the Lord” will appear like “a thief in the night.”  The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757247093699” (Level 7 with 125,124 points, a member since February 26, 2006) posted the following:

 

I’ve heard it said that on Judgment Day the God may decide to save or damn us randomly. What do you think of this idea?

It goes like this. On Judgment Day the God and the Satan will be standing there in the great hallway counting out souls as they file by “One For You, One For Me, One For You, One For Me” and so on… If this turns out to be the case, and you were one of the holy people, and spent your entire life on Earth in a state of fervent belief and pious church attendance, won’t you feel a little embarrassed to discover your salvation or damnation will be based purely on chance?

Earnest replies appreciated.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD:  the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.  That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,  A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.  And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD:  and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.  Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy:  for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.  (Zephaniah 1:  14-18, King James Version, KJV)

“2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757247093699”, judgment is an aspect of the divine character, makeup, and substance, and should be understood as a continuous divine process that is occurring right now.  Mature Christian believers rely upon the holy writings from Genesis to Revelation for information regarding the final judgment that alone will fulfill many of the specific proclamations, promises, and prophecies from GOD.  No one knows the exact day or hour for what we also call “the close of judgment,” yet, all are to be certain of its nearness.  The “day of the Lord” is described as a day of awe, dread, terror, and weeping, for the wrath of GOD against sin will be unleashed upon disbelievers, the wicked, and those rebelling against the sovereign will of GOD.  The day of the Lord is often confused with the Advent (we say, the Rapture, the Second Coming) when the Savior will appear in the air to receive those who belong to him and are “ripe” (balanced, complete, mature) as GOD’s harvest from the earth.  The Scriptures speak of two harvesting events.  As the Scriptures speak of two resurrection events, where resurrection is the granting of life to the dead required for them to appear in the presence of GOD:  the first for the just (i.e., the righteous), and the second for the unjust (i.e., the wicked).  Similarly, the Scriptures speak of the first death where the living complete their mortality, and their physical body is separated from their inherited as well as their imparted spirit content received through baptism (death of ones inborn spirit, rebirth from divine DNA, so to speak).  In the second death, those who no longer have a spirit that is immediately recognizable as from GOD will be annihilated and totally removed from existence.  They will be cast into the Lake of Fire that was prepared for the destruction of the devil and his angels.  The devil will not exist as a prince or ruler over dead sinners in a place where he has authority, glory and privilege.  He will be cast into the Lake of Fire, and will neither be allowed to set foot in the New Jerusalem nor serve any longer as an accuser of the brethren.  All will be judged on the basis of the spirit appearing through their own attitudes, deeds, habits, and purposes as recorded in the Book of Life.  Consider the following:

(1.)  2nd Peter 3:  9-13, King James Version (KJV):  9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,  12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

(2.)  Revelation 20:  1-6, KJV:  1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,  3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled:  and after that he must be loosed a little season.  4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them:  and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.  6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:  on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

(3.)  Revelation 20:  7-11, KJV:  7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,  8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:  the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.  9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.  10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.  11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Revelation 20:  12-15, KJV:  12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:  and another book was opened, which is the book of life:  and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.  13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:  and they were judged every man according to their works.  14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
